Another Uni outdoor reading room will launch June 22 in Washington State. Run by the Seattle-based Foundation for Early Learning, this new Uni will pop up in urban and rural areas throughout the state. We’re providing the Uni structure and start-up support, and the foundation is running the show. More details here.

Congratulations to everyone on the Uni team that helped turn around this new Uni in record time. We’ll post unwrapping photos when the truck arrives on the other coast. (Scroll to bottom for amusing time lapse of how to wrap a Uni for shipping.)

We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 700 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.

For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
